Why I Love Making Christmas Cookies
Hands down, one of my favorite holiday traditions is baking cookies with my kids. I baked Christmas cookies with my mom and grandma every year growing up, and I couldn’t wait to continue the tradition when I had kids of my own. The first year was like a nostalgic rollercoaster, hitting me with all those warm and fuzzy feelings! Baking Christmas cookies together isn’t just about mixing ingredients. It’s about creating timeless memories and over time you’ll build a sweet collection of Christmas cookie recipes!
Baking during the holidays is also a great way to help little ones learn new skills in the kitchen. It gives them permission to express themselves creatively, from decorating cookies with festive holiday colors to experimenting with fun flavor combinations. And not to mention, Christmas cookies double up as fantastic gifts for friends, teachers, and family, adding a sprinkle of homemade charm to your holiday presents.
Overall, baking Christmas cookies encourages a sense of togetherness and unity. Whether you’re having a chaotic but fun family baking day or exchanging cookies with friends, it’s these shared moments that bring everyone closer. Wishing you all some beautiful kitchen moments with your loved ones this holiday season!
